JANAKPUR, Jan 16: A special committee formed earlier to carry out a study on deciding the name and capital of Province 2 is scheduled to table its report at a meeting of the provincial assembly of the province taking place today at 11 am.
The committee led by Speaker of the province Saroj Kumar Yadav held discussions on the matter with various political parties and the provincial assembly members but failed to garner consensus.
So in the meeting, a deliberation on the proposal to this effect put forward by the Provincial Assembly members would take place and the matter would go to an election, said the secretary of the Provincial Assembly Secretariat Ranjit Kumar Yadav.
The committee tried to find consensus on the name and capital of the province from among various proposals—Madhes, Janaki, Mithila Bhojpura, and Madhya Madhes (the name of the province) and Janakpur and Birgunj (capital of the province). According to the provision, it requires two-thirds votes to pass the name and capital of a province through the provincial assembly.
